Time, Talents, and Treasures

Most of us, at one point or another, have confused stewardship with the church’s need to receive. The reality is that stewardship is about directing our time, talent, and treasure toward God’s purposes as a personal response to God’s goodness. As we grow in generosity, we grow in faith. This is the essence of what Jesus means in Matthew 6:21 when he says, “where you treasure is, there your heart will be also.” There is a direct relationship between where our money goes and how our hearts grow.
